First spring day....

Well, this weekend seems to have been the first proper real showing of a promising summer.  Saturday seemed to be the perfect day, sunshine and not a breath of wind. If i'd been floating in sea on my surfboard it would have been almost perfect.  Instead I took myself for a bit of a wander and snapped a few pics.
I spotted the little angel in the grave yard on the way back to the car, it must only be about 8 inches high, but managed to be the most noticeable thing in the graveyard among the massive grave stones.

Footy photographs...good times!!

Well, I managed to prove to myself this evening that once again, I reeeeeeaaaaally need to get a slightly better lens for my sports photography, so its off to the shops.

Findus FC won the Shield tonight winning 2-0 in a reasonably warm(ish for March) night at longbenton sports field.'s a couple of action shots from the nights action.

Wedding bells are a ringin'.....'s done.

First major milestone is out of the road and I must say thank to Tania and Jimmy, it was all made alot easier than I expected.

I've never had so many nervous wee's in my entire life before I photographed the wedding on saturday just gone, but, was all worth while as I think the extra nerves helped me put in that little extra effort to make sure it all worked out.

I'll post some more pics once I've checked with the Bride and Groom that they're happy with my selection, so watch this space.

Can't not mention Charlie (not his real name) Drake for being my assistant for the day, cheers mate.

Slow and steady.....but I'll get there in the end.

Quickie update...

Well, things are kinda getting there, hopefully going to have my business plan all done and dusted within the next two weeks to allow me access to some funding, so if there is anyone reading, could you cross your fingers.

I'll hopefully be posting some really nice wedding pictures on here after Saturday aswell, so anyone not crossing their fingers....a sundance would be nice.

Lil' Annabel

Quick update then....

Manage to sort myself out with someone pretty promising to do my business plan through Business link, thus opening the door to lots of funding hopefully.  With regards to the rest of the stuff that's going on, watch this space for possible exciting, (well I think it's exciting) news.   

Little bit of training this morning by way of children's portraits with Claire and James and not forgetting the star of the show, little Annabel.  She was a little star, not so much as a peep all the way through, bless her little socks.

Anyway, here's a small selection of my favourites from the shoot.

Hope you like em.

Old stuff....

It's been a bit of a hectic week this week. Lots of paperwork stuff to be done with regards to this setting up a business carry on, but on the plus side, I've looked at my potential finances and all looks super smart so far and after a meeting this morning with my property man, I can rent space at half the price I planned by the looks, so WOOOO HOOO...fingers crossed.

Anyway, this is apparently a photography blog, so thought I'd best stick some pics up. I've become intrigued lately by old things and found these 2 little things in a big pile of soil I was helping someone move a couple of weeks ago.  'scuse the dodgy background, I took the picture on my kitchen table using the big window for lighting, but you can see they're super little gems. My dad probably still has so
me of this stuff kicking about in his shed.

Best disappear and remove the dregs of oil I took from the two tins from the glass on the window sill before Charlie thinks it's apple juice.
